A note from the DTL Research Commitee Chairs, Balachander Krishnamurthy and Nikolaos Laoutaris:
Of the 54 submissions received 26 were discussed extensively online (with some submissions receiving a score of comments) and half of them were further vetted in the live PC meeting.
We focused on working end-user software, a collection platform, transparency, privacy protection, and novelty. 8 submissions out of those discussed in the PC meeting were presented in no particular order to the DTL board on Wednesday June 8. The board selected 6 submissions to fund.
We thank the PC for their hard work in reviewing, extensive online discussions and participating in the PC meeting. We thank the board for their pointed questions and selecting submissions that we all hope will generate transparency software. We thank all the submittees for their time. We expect the grant awardees to complete their software, make the code and data available, and to present their results with a demo at DTL next year.
